Tennessee police is caught on camera beating a young man in handcuffs, but according to the officer’s police report, Charles Toney was trying to reach in his pocket. The 24-year-old suffered a collapsed lung, broken nose, ribs and finger.
Toney is being represented by S. Lee Merritt, who is also representing the family of Botham Jean, the 26-year-old who was killed in his own home by Amber Guyger in Dallas. After a sherriff said that Toney was checked out of the hospital because he didn’t need medical attention, Merritt told WRCB, “Mr. Toney suffered a collapsed lung. He suffered a broken nose. He suffered two broken ribs. He was seriously injured in this assault.” He also said, about Kilpatrick, “If everything checks out, his past and present should be brought to bare, then this officer should face punishment for his actions.”
